Leave it to the birth of your first child to bring you and your spouse closer than you ever thought possible.
I love Finn…and I love Ashley even more since experiencing my love for this miracle God has created through us.
I cannot wait to take him home to a place that is stable, loving, fun, and good because of his mom and dad’s love for each other. Before I was married I used to say, “there’s no room for marriage in my busy, cool, hip lifestyle.” After being married to Ash almost six years I’m finally forgetting the smell of the gutter I used to live in. Before Finn I used to say, “there’s no room for a kid in our marriage; what if it comes between Ash and I?” After experiencing the last 36 hours of Finn’s presence in the world I realize that Ashley and I’s love is big enough for him and bigger because of him.
Maybe that’s what marriage love is. Like God’s love. It’s so big, intimate, and close that your children just fit.
